The snow-covered trees of Riisitunturi National Park are known among nature photographers worldwide.
Riisitunturi National Park provides a delightful playground for nature lovers. The hillsides of the park are decorated by rare slope mires and the bare fell tops offer breathtaking views over Lake Kitkajärvi and the forests beyond. In the winter the candle-like spruces are clad with a thick coating of condensed frost, creating a photogenic white forest. The highest peaks of Riisitunturi rise above 400 meters.
